      I work in international, interdisciplinary and collaborative contexts and have been a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities at QUB and a visiting Research Fellow at Australian and Canadian Universities.  I work at the intersections of the social sciences, humanities and creative arts and am currently working with colleagues in Psychiatry, Law, Geography, Drama and Music.  I am interested in the ways in which across the Developed World rural communities are moving away from an agrarian-based society. Here I draw on experience of working in Canada and Australia as demonstrated in my publication record. I have developed a multi-institutional, inter-disciplinary team currently engaged in developing research on a) the representation of family farming, b) the impact of the demise of agrarianism in the ‘farmscape’ on farming men who remain an ‘at risk’ from suicide c) Stigma and help seeking amongst farming men and d) the development of creative, qualitative methodologies.  I draw on epistemologies from agricultural, rural, cultural, historical, creative, gendered and emotional geographies. 


      I would be interested in hearing from potential PhD candidates in any of the above areas.
